What we did

Returning to rehearsals after our big break day, we had a productive day that joyfully began with our rehearsal ritual of Eastenders. When we got into the work, we started with a run of everything we had blocked so far, then moved forward in the play, blocking what he had not. Today we discussed parallels in the play, like that of Patroclus and Achilles compared to Troilus and Cressida.

Quick and Quotable

  • From the Play
    • “ And better would it fit Achilles much, / To throw down Hector than Polyxena.” – Ulysses

Ulysses warning Achilles of his grim fate.

  • From the Director
    • “Ooooh you really did that” – Mili
    • “When you’re ready Agamemny!” – Mili
  • From the Cast
    • “That’s all to Aggy” – Bee figuring out when Ulysses is talking to Agamemnon

Production Insights 

We have blocked two thirds of the entire show, so we begun productive, and we’ve only gone up from there. The excitement has barely died down since the start of the process even though we were lower energy today. Our run today showed that we understand the text to a high degree after all of our text work, and our discussions while blocking.
